Dc next 2 dc together=
Work a dc in the next stitch without completing the very last step (leave the last two loops on the hook), then dc in the next stitch without completing the last step. You should have three loops on the hook. Then yarn over and draw through all the loops.
Hope this helps. Glad you like the hat!
